This template is intended to display quotes in a standardized format.

Usage

In its simplest form (minimum number of parameters), the template will format a single line of dialog and its attribution.

For example:

{{quote|What do you want, you moon-faced assassin of joy?|'''Londo''', to Vir (from ''[[Born to the Purple]]'')}}

produces

"What do you want, you moon-faced assassin of joy?"
Londo, to Vir (from Born to the Purple)


The template will also format up to ten lines of dialog, along with the attribution, by adding additional parameters to the end – one line of dialog per parameter.

For example:

{{quote|Are you Ambassador G'Kar?|'''Tu'Pari''' and '''G'Kar''' (from ''[[The Parliament of Dreams]]'')|This is Ambassador G'Kar's quarters. This is Ambassador G'Kar's table. This is Ambassador G'Kar's dinner. Which part of this progression escapes you?}}

produces

"Are you Ambassador G'Kar?"
"This is Ambassador G'Kar's quarters. This is Ambassador G'Kar's table. This is Ambassador G'Kar's dinner. Which part of this progression escapes you?"
Tu'Pari and G'Kar (from The Parliament of Dreams)


Note: The attribution parameter can only be passed in the second position. This is to maintain compatibility with an earlier version of this template that was limited to only one line of dialog.
